Dan Kucervosky - An abstract Brown-Douglas-Fillmore absorption theorem, I

An abstract Brown-Douglas-Fillmore absorption theorem, I


A common generalization is given of all previous absorption theorems for $C^\ast$-algebra extensions. We consider extensions of a stable, nuclear, separable $C^\ast$-algebra by an arbitrary separable $C^\ast$-algebra, and in this setting, we give a simple intrinsic criterion for an extension to be absorbing. The criterion involves only the $C^\ast$-algebra of the extension, together with the canonical closed two-sided ideal. This is joint work with George Elliott.
